Time for decisive action in J&K: Sonia

NEW DELHI, Apr 27:
The Congress today said the repeated terror attacks in the country were extremely worrying and must be met with decisive action and not rhetoric.
Condemning the militant attack on an Army camp in Kupwara, Congress President Sonia Gandhi termed Pakistan- sponsored terror as a cancer. “The entire country is certainly worried about the repeated terrorist attacks happening in the country,” she said.
Gandhi conveyed her condolences over the death of three security personnel, including an officer, in the Kupwara attack and stressed that the Congress and every Indian were standing with the families of the martyrs.
Speaking in the same vein, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi said that the repeated terrorist attacks on Army camps are extremely worrying.
“Must be met with strategic and decisive action,” he said on Twitter.
He expressed his “heartfelt condolences to the families of our three brave soldiers martyred in the Kupwara attack”.
Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad also expressed grief over the loss of lives in the militant attack.
“I am shocked to learn that our brave hearts including an officer were martyred in this cowardly act of militants” Azad said in a statement.
AICC incharge of communications Department Randeep Surjewala said the Kupwara attack was similar to the one in Uri.
“Wake up from inertia and give a befitting reply.
“Since 2014, 198 jawans have been sacrificed in J&K. 72 soldiers martyred in 2017 fighting Naxalism. Times demand decisive action not rhetoric,” he said.
